Affinity Knowledge Learning System TM

Using our patent pending technology, the Affinity Knowledge Learning SystemTM (AKLS) groups and categorizes elements that share properties and often appear together into Word, Character and Radical Ponds. These affinity properties can increase both learning effectiveness and retention. AKLS incorporates an artificial intelligence (AI) engine that uses these affinity properties and other information to tailor the learning needs of individual students and optimize learning experience and results.
